Squeegee preparation

To avoid ever scratching the film when using any hard card, I keep a piece of wet n' dry handy to keep my squeegee edge smooth. After every stroke of the squeegee across the film I wipe the edge with a cloth and never ever get any scratches in the film.

teflon cards and lil chizlers are easy to buff the edge on using just your denim pant leg. Just rub the edge hard a few times.....

:dunno or if you dont have denim on, use the side of a cardboard box

I think its important for noobie tinters to make sure the squeegee is wiped clean after every swipe across the film. any dirt stuck to a squeegee from behing gasket etc can easily scratch the film. Maybe, just maybe, I have saved someone from a re-tint! :lol2

that other day I bladed a window, installed the film, made my first pass, and tore compleytly through it.

when I set the blade on the door panel's arm rest, I didnt notice but I put the sqeegee on top of it. it stuck to the squeegee and as I passed it on the film, it sliced right through.
